British and European Ironmongery Standards

Ironmongery products tested to British and European standards provide greater durability, longer warranty periods, peace of mind and evidence of professional specification.

Under the standard each product is tested and classified accordingly to show its compliance. Almost all European architectural hardware standards follow a common format to help ease their understanding by users.

Each product is classified under several performance headings. All products are “marked” with a six or more digit classification coding which shows, in fine detail, just what levels of product performance are being claimed for the item.
